    So I've been reading through all the info on OT and around the web. I'm looking to get a new camera (beginner) and am torn.

    One camp seems to say d40 is all you really need, but others say otherwise. Should I get the d40? I also saw this thread

    and it seems like a hell of a deal. Thoughts?

    I'd pick up a used D50 before a D40.

    A d90 and kit lens would be a great way to start as well if you can afford it :cool:

    Any reason why you're considering Nikon over Canon? Check out the XT or XS with a kit lens. They should do find for what you're looking to do right now.
